Hello Dee, I wonder whether you still have the full-size image of the Riverside Cemetery (Wichita Falls) map? I reference that all the time and would love to be able to 'zoom in'. -James

Memorial# 59922783 Photo request. Dee If you are still there could I request a headstone picture of Trixie Mae Thompson please. I believe this might be a double stone of her and Charles Clayton Thompson. I see there is snow in that area of Wichita Falls. thank you, Sue K

Thank you Dee. I have never known we can contact Findagrave. How do we as contributors do that? Lanny Medlin has withdrawn any connection to him on findagrave. I would like to be the sponsor/owner. Whats the difference? gosh I have alot to learn I guess. thank you and look forward to your assistance. Sue Knudsen

Change of name assistance

Frank Maron Medlin

Should be Francis Marion Medlin aka "Frank Maron Medlin"

I guess Lanny Medlin has turned off his profile and messages for this individual. I'd consider doing the care now if you can tell me how to go about it. Thank you, Sue Knudsen

Thanks, Dee, for granting permission to upload your photos of the double headstone for James Peyton and Virgie Mozelle Wade to my original Find A Grave memorials. I sincerely appreciate your consideration in this matter. Mike

Robert H Campbell
Mr Shappell, today I placed on findagrave the wife of Robert H Campbell in the same cemetery as her husband. I did this based upon the obituary I found for her, which leads me to believe she is buried in the same cemetery. If she is a relative of yours or if you want to have her site transferred to you for any reason, just let me know and I would be happy to do that.

Mattie Jimmy Boswell Lewellyn
Hi Dee!

I was thrilled to see that you found the grave of my daughter Vienna's great grandmother Mattie Jimmy Boswell Lewellyn.
Vienna's Father was born in Wichita Falls Texas where Mattie was buried. Vienna has always been told that she is American Indian on her father's side and we have been looking for several years now on making that connection.

We would love to see a photo of the front and back of the tombstone if you have one. We are also looking for information on Vienna's Great Grandfather and I believe his name was Joseph Leander Boswell.

Also any information you can find on her child Mildred Olean Boswell Helms. We believe her husband was Nolie Helms.

Thank you in advance for your time and I so look forward to hearing from you soon. It's nice finally finding out where you come from.


P.S. I have signed up on here and am going to start going to cemeteries in my area to help others. This is a great site.
